Bicycles

Bike transport subcategory comes in handy when you are going on a trip and you need to transport your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you need to transport it home. Other frequent reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport subcategory is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for shipping

The best container in which you can transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bicycle is not brand new, you can ship it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the bike (such as bicycle chain). If you do not have original packaging, try to acquire a container that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bicycle in the container the better. Before placing the bicycle in the container, you may want to detach all the removable elements – like lights or handlebars.  After you have removed mentioned elements, it is safest to place them in separate container or enclose them in cardboard and then attach them to the bike frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding elements (such as bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the box after placing the bike in has to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to reduce any shocks during shipping as the bike will be unable to move around in the packaging. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to search for a transport provider to ship your bike, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider can help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be transported with maximum care.
